Mario Kart 64 Virtual Console Review

Mario Kart 64 Virtual Console Review

                                                                     Mario Kart 64 was the first video game I ever played, so you bet I’m not going to give it a bad rating. Also I gave my N64 away(big mistake) and havent played it in a while. I was giddy with the excitment of playing it and suprisingly the download time wasn’t as long as I […]

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess review

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess review

This review comes rather late, but I simply had to do it, for it’s a game that’s arguably, the best launch title, and game, ever in gaming history. Which game is it? The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess of course. As a huge Zelda fan, some may consider my review to be biased, but make no mistake, it’s the total […]

Toejam & Earl Review

Toejam & Earl Review

THIS IS THE GAME THAT FUNK BUILT ToeJam & Earl was one of the first games I bought for the VC. I remember spending hours playing this thing on my best friend’s Sega Genesis back in the day. God I love the virtual console, Oh the memories! But some things (like Highlander II: The Quickening) are best left in your […]

Wario Ware: Smooth Moves…First Impressions

Wario Ware: Smooth Moves…First Impressions

Well, I got this game on Friday and have to say that it’s not too bad. The main story will take you about 1 hour to blast through and will teach you all the different ways to hold the remote as well as how to play. You have to play through all of the single player before you unlock the […]

Gunstar Heroes Review

Gunstar Heroes Review

This game is fast paced! My roommate and I spent the first 5 minutes mashing buttons madly as an endless torrent of baddies were thrown at us, explosions going off left and right before we figured out the controls. All this confusion was compounded by the fact that the two little guys look about 90% the same. One is a […]

Call Of Duty 3: Review

Call Of Duty 3: Review

When the Wii controller concept was first revealed I was excited at the idea of how much it could improve the FPS game experience. Traditionally first person shooters have always seemed better with a mouse and keyboard over the analog stick gamepad. In the past this left home console gamers out of luck but now the Wii can change all […]

Excite Tree

Excite Tree

Excite Truck is an amazingly fun racing game. Since I’m the type of gamer that loves to replay levels until I get the best score (well, except for Trauma Center cause I got pissed at the difficulty), I have trouble going on to the next track until I attain an S Rank. As the difficulty starts to ramp up toward […]

Soldier Blade Review

Soldier Blade Review

I bought Soldier Blade today for the VC. It’s a top scrolling, arcade style shooter. It has about as much plot as you would expect from this kind of game made in the early 90’s. I’m told the story has something to do with invading Zeograds or some such thing. What Zeo is and how you graduate from it I […]

Rayman: Raving Rabbids Review

Rayman: Raving Rabbids Review

Warning: This is a review containing information on the whole game! It could spoil the game for you, if there was anything to spoil…  This game seemed to have high potential when it was first unveiled at e3, with momentum growing over the next few months. But, after playing through the game, the first thought that went through my mind was, “What the […]

Here is WiiNintendo.net viewed on the Wii Opera browser. The text is un-readable (without zooming) and you can only see one article (actually only 1/4 of an article). Also, since my site is usually graphically and video heavy the Wii browser cannot bookmark it. This is the same page of WiiNintendo.net viewed on the Wii Opera browser. This time I […]

Review: WiimoteSkins

Review: WiimoteSkins

Modding skills not up to par? Don’t feel like dissecting your controller to make it look like an 8-bit NES controller, have no fear WiimoteSkins.com has released a whole bunch of very carefully designed skins that fit the Wiimote like a glove. When I first heard about “stickers” for my Wiimote or console I was immediately put off, I didn’t […]

GoNintendo reviews the Wii NES RetroPort. The device plugs into the Gamecube controller ports, and allows you to plug in your old NES controller to really get the old school feeling of those Virtual Console games. “You want a review?

BusinessWeek “Wii: One Ferocious Underdog”

BusinessWeek “Wii: One Ferocious Underdog”

Virtual Reality in Your Living Room What makes it so outstanding? It boils down to Nintendo’s (NTDOY) decision to focus on how games are played, rather than the glitz and glitter of the games themselves. The company’s innovative motion-sensitive Wii Remote controller truly creates the closest thing you’ll get on a home system to virtual reality. Always thought you could […]

IGN Gives Zelda: Twilight Princess a 9.5

IGN Gives Zelda: Twilight Princess a 9.5

IGN’s Conclusion: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is, in my opinion, the greatest Zelda game ever created and one of the best launch titles in the history of launch titles – second only, perhaps, to the at-the-time ground-breaking Super Mario 64. It is also one of the finest games I have ever played. The experience is made better and […]
